91 laps as Raikkonen completes Renault test

By on

On the second and final day of his running in a two year old Renault R30, Kimi Raikkonen completed 91 laps to bring the grand total to 171. Todays running was divided between short morning runs and then longer runs towards the afternoon, while focusing on new tyre and full tank load behavior.

Track Operations Engineer Alan Permane shared more info about Tuesdays running: "We enjoyed another good day with Kimi in Valencia. The morning was spent doing set-up work in particular with front and rear cambers. In the afternoon we ran very low fuel qualifying simulations with two new sets of tyres followed by a 27 lap run starting with a full tank of fuel.

"Kimi's pace improved from yesterday as we would expect and we completed several start, pitstop and clutch simulations. We were even able to finish early as we completed our programme ahead of time. Overall it has been a productive and valuable two days."
